look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz bottle into wine glass.

Appearance: Golden-honey. Slight head that disappears almost completely fairly quickly.

Smell: MALTS. And lots of them. Sweet and citrusy with some hop character as well.

Taste: Love the balance of sweet malts up front and very hoppy bitterness aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation. Hoppy bitterness REALLY sticks around for a while in the back of the throat. And this is expected, seeing as how it's 100+ IBUs which is advertised gloatingly on the bottle.

Overall: A great beer and my idea of what I love in an IPA. A little sweetness and then a strong hoppy bitter finish that knocks your fucking socks off at the end. 3.8/5
